Looking at possibly buying an old cruiser, but need to get it back from the Lower Mainland to Kelowna.

Apparently, it has a "rear end howl" all the time, which can only be heard as you're coasting to a stop (so it's not TOO loud)

Any idea what this might be?

Thanks

Greg: "yeah that looks pretty tight up in there, you want me to bring up the rear?"

{nervously} Baby Joe: Umm nooo... that's ok, you can lead.

The devil made me do it... I swear! :*******

Shawn bad news man. You got problems.
That's the same sound that I got out of my rearend on my old 10 bolt before I blew the ring gear. Noisy as hell just before it blew, I had about 5 to 10 km. before the lights were out. Get it checked out dude.
Mind ya, my dad had a van for 20 years that had a noise from the rear diff. all the time. The noise never went away, And you know I abused it when I was young.
I would get a second apinion.

Hey Killer,

Thankfully, it's not the 4Runner (so I can still make it back and forth to school.. wheeee)

Looking at a cruiser that has that trouble.

Yah I know, Be careful get a second apinion even if you have to pay a mechanic. It is way cheaper that a tow ride somewhere on the connector.

Right now I'm looking at taking it into extremebends in Coquitlam and getting it fixed, just so I don't have to worry about it

Otherwise, streetstocker has given me a quote to get it home from there :)

Hopefully won't come to that though

Somehow that sounds like some sort of nasty double meaning.
Only to you, you sicko! Get your mind out of the gutter... :D

Yeah, or maybe it's merely a simple matter of sticking your grease gun up underneath there and squirting in some lube... :D
